A Thank You Happy for a Friend

A friend, neighbor and sometimes walking buddy was generous enough to open her pool for our use this summer with MM was here visiting. I had a tote that I had picked up on clearance at WalMart to put her monogram or name on(she's forever more making things and taking them to people). Well I hadn't gotten around to deciding what to do exactly, when this week's Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog theme was Anything But a Card. I was going to make a box envelope for stationery, but I wasn't feeling it. When looking through my Sassy Cheryl images, I came across a pre-colored image I had purchased called Birdhouses on a Hill. Inspiration struck and I knew exactly what I was going to do.

I had a package of the Silhouette Heat Transfer Material for Dark Colored Fabrics. It was just a matter of creating my scalloped oval, adding an oval within it with my image pulled in, and adding Robin's name. Filling in background colors and then doing a print and cut. With this material, you have to pull your cut image off the paper and then lay it on your fabric. Also, it says to cover with a thick material like a dish towel, before pressing(this is REALLY important, ask me how I know), and pressing. Now I just need to add some goodies to the tote before I deliver it. Have I told you how much I love my Silhouette Cameo?

I love the way it turned out,  and wish now I had a ton more of those pre-colored Sassy Cheryl Images for some little girl t-shirts.
